Clearly not on this occasion! :D

Bad luck with that mate but sounds like you want to stick with that landlord, If he's gonna give you an old fashioned trainset for damaging your new one, maybe you should try and tamper with the springs on your garage door? If the door dents the bonnet of your new "ford Focus" maybe he'll have an old fashioned "austin 7" to give you as compensation??? :D

Good luck with the rebuild, keep us posted!

Cheers

Aargh! Ye gods how aggravating! Have a pint on me. How much damage has been done to the layout? At least it happened now - if, by some miracle, you had hurtled to the scenery-creating bit, the damage and expense would have been a whole lot worse. When this gets sorted you'll know the roof is sound and you can proceed quite happily. So, shame that it happened, but at least it happened now and you won't have to worry about it again.

Also, landlords suck :evil:

Must have had woodlice in the ceiling :lol: or could have been a rotton ceiling (and an old roof)

You should have dug a trench in the boards where the canal was to go, and sealed it, you'd be sorted then :lol:

Well what can I say, I lost my bet big time :D :D as they have also plastered the ceiling now just finished cleaning up and the landlord as good as his word all wood dilivered to the door 2x 8x4 sheets of 10mm marine ply also 2x2 and 1x2 with track pins and a tub of ballast and he wants to come over tommorow and help put it together, wow I nearly passed out with shock , johnathan is a dam good property maninager, more of a friend, so now I can get on with my ammerican theme, as Ive got two lovley old disel locos to start off and some roling stock to, ( he admited to me he wants to build one of his own) any how Ive planed this out so far

1) first track large oval with siding
2)track large oval with two sidings and a tunnel
bridge over quarrie road
timber yard or paper mill
forested airas with men on chainsaws
trucks and hallers, cable car from upper level
log cabbins, small vilage
teligraph poles, rock faces
3) upperleval track at later date but want to do this n guage to give the apperience of narrow guage

Seriously, not many landlords wind up being that cool.

Wow you have been busy!
And even your landlord wants to help, no wander that's all been done.
I bet he'll start his layout as soon this one is finished.
